We've devised 215 walks in Cornwall, ranging from 2 to 10 miles, totalling 1047 miles. Each walk has a map of the route, detailed directions, photos and notes on the heritage and natural history. The walks are classified by length, steepness grade, type of scenery (coastal, moorland, riverside etc) and, of course, whether there's a pub.
The walks are all available via our guided walk mobile app - a "SatNav" for walking, describing when and what to do next, and giving you information about the local area as you walk around the route. You can install the app or find out more. You can install the app or find out more. Search the App Store or Google Play for "iWalk Cornwall" to install it. If you don't have a smartphone, the walks are available to browse on the web.
We have used this app on eight walks while on holiday in West Cornwall and can thoroughly recommend it. Having used maps and walk books in the past with reasonable success, we can honestly say that this app is practically foolproof. The snippets of information given at various points in the walk are also welcome and well judged.
What a brilliant, brilliant app. Born and bred in Cornwall, and still have so many beautiful places still unseen. This app is perfect for visiting those amazing places. Thank you for the massive time and effort involved to benefit others.
Easy to use. Uncluttered design, like the look and feel of it. This was the first time I used it and I took a shortcut as it was tipping down and the app got me back on track.
Brilliant App. This really is a fantastic app. The way it works with the GPS is superb. Had a really enjoyable walk today. Just make sure your phone is fully charged before you start.
I have just spent two weeks walking around Cornwall with the assistance of your App and I must say how much it increased my walking pleasure. Since my return, I have been telling all my friends how great it is.
This app is excellent! Easy to use, clear instructions and you can tell a lot of time and effort has gone into planning and researching the walks. We've been to places we would never have known existed without this app. Highly recommended, would give you 6 stars if I could ;)
Well I downloaded the app and we decided to do our first walk on the bedruthan steps. Having read how good these iwalks were, you are still a little apprehensive but honestly, it's easy, informative, and the noise that it makes at every stage is fantastic. I am guessing all the tours are the same standard but this was brilliant. As for the walk, a lot of up and down hill, fields and rocks, but the scenery is awesome. Enjoy
Love using this App. I have done 2 walks so far using it. Holywell Bay to Crantock and Carn Naun to St Ives. Enjoyed both walks with their stunning views and secret coves. App prevented me from getting lost both times!
Wonderful. Just wanted to drop you a quick note and say how much we love your app. We used it today for the Mousehole - Lamorna Cove walk. It was so handy to have the notifications come through telling us where to go, we would have taken a few wrong turns otherwise no doubt! It was also really nice to have insights into the the history of area. Congratulations on a fantastic app and website, you have done a wonderful job.
Brilliant I cannot praise this app enough, absolutely brilliant and it makes it impossible to get lost, unless you run out of phone battery! I really wish there was one for devon too.
We have used this app a few times now and wouldn't hesitate to use it again . The walks we have completed were truly amazing with spectacular scenery. Very clear route instructions ( we didn't get lost once ) we took the odd screen shot of directions just in case we lost signal . But we didn't need to refer to them !! We are busy planning our next adventure with iwalk Cornwall . Superb stuff , keep the walks coming. many thanks
Well crafted GPS guided walks across beautiful Cornwall with thoughtful step by step commentary. I've never get lost on a iWalk :) Thoroughly recommend!
Brilliant app. Made our Cornish holiday even better.
Excellent walking app. Really good app of Cornish walks - very detailed and up to date directions and the app bleeps if you go off course! Each walk has a free summary page with a description and tempting photos. The walks themselves cost £1.49, and are well worth it. They include helpful maps to use alongside an OS map, and interesting facts about local points of interest. Highly recommended!
Downloaded your app just before a week-end trip to Cornwall from Bristol. We did the Lanhydrock Gardens walk on Friday afternoon, Fowey to Polruan walk on Saturday and Talland Bay to Looe on Sunday. App worked really, really well and we didnt get lost once. It was brilliant. Many thanks for the opportunity and will definitely use it again when we are in Cornwall.
Brilliant. This app has never let me down. The selection of walks is excellent and various options, features including battery preservation and choice of map and directions make it practical. We live in Cornwall but have been delighted to meet other impressed users and holiday makers en routes. They are easy to contact with suggestions too! Highly recommended. My blind husband loved the audible tones too 'what is it telling you now' - great.
I downloaded iwalk at the start of the week. I have been very impressed with its simplicity, yet detailed information. The app has a wide variety of walks to suit all fitnesses and it covers a variety of different geographical styles of walking - eg pub walks coast walks circular walks etc etc I would recommend this app!
Fantastic - enhanced the holiday - good value for money.
I just wanted to say how much I enjoy using your walks, they're easy to follow and have lots of interesting things pointed out along the way.
Great App ... Download it NOW! ★★★★★ This app is fantastic and does exactly what it is advertised to do. The walk we took around Lanhydrock was great and the additional information provided by the app was clear and informative. The GPS location triggered prompts saved battery life and the preloaded map saved frustration waiting for maps to load in poor reception conditions. We are looking forward to taking more walks with this app. Congratulations to the developers on a job well done.
Excellent app. Very informative and accurate. Thanks for making our holiday easy
Excellent App! ★★★★★ Firstly let me congratulate you on your fantastic App. We have used it several times now and really enjoyed the selection of walks and the quality of information provided.
Fantastic app! ★★★★★ Such a good app and a great selection of walks. We have just done 3 of them on our recent trip to north cornwall. A good mix of different distances so we could do them with the kids. Very informative and we never got lost!
A great addition to a walk ★★★★★ This was a great find! So many walks to choose from, and the app worked perfectly throughout the walk we chose. Our teenager particularly enjoyed using it and happily completed the whole walk with iPhone in hand. The directions arrived perfectly at the end of each section we completed and were very accurate. The log of how far you've walked and the estimated time left were very useful. I wish there were similar walks for elsewhere in the UK!
A really useful app ★★★★★ We tried the circular walk from Cape Cornwall to Levant and the app worked treat, really helpful directions which in places would have been difficult to identify on a map. By the way, the walk was marvellous. Highly recommended.
Great app ★★★★★. Works really well. Directions move forward on screen in alignment to your position on the ground which makes it easy to follow the next step on the route. Very impressed.
★★★★★ Great. Very clear, easy to use and reliable. Really good app
Faultless app ★★★★★. Just wish I had found this app earlier on my walking holiday. Easy and informative.
Great step by step guide with surprising accuracy. The historic info really adds to the experience.
This is the best app I have loaded into my phone!!! I loved using it, I'm a very beginner hiker and this was the perfect tool for me to use with my sisters on our trip to Cornwall. Thanks for all the hard work, I appreciate it!!
Does exactly what it says on the tin. Exceptionally easy to use, step by step guidance that gives you next direction exactly when you need it. This is a nice walk stunning countryside and coastal paths.
Used your app for the first time last weekend, absolutely brilliant app.....Given us much more confidence for those longer walks and really like the information on route. We'll definitely use again.
just thought id say that your app is superb - made a joy of walking in an unfamiliar area
Excellent Walk ★★★★★. A very good app and an excellent walk the directions were very clear and the scenery spectacular.
Iwalk Cornwall ★★★★★. The best £1.49 ever spent. Turn by turn instructions extremely accurate with great notifications and information on local points of interest.
Worth the cost ★★★★★. An excellent app that not only gives you a walk but provides information about where you are and follows your steps. A reminder bleep sounds at each change to ensure you stay on track. The walks were perfect too! Please can we have more for the rest of the UK?!
Brilliant ★★★★★. We used this app for the first time today. I paid £1.49 for the Bude walk. It is handy, informative and just so useful. It gave us confidence to walk through gates we might otherwise have thought were private. It alerted us to each next phase of our walk with relevant info along the way. There was no 3G or mobile coverage on the walk but using the GPS facility it kept track of us all the way. Highly, highly recommended.
Truly excellent ★★★★★. This app works brilliantly. Very detailed directions that pop up automatically when you get to the relevant part of the walk. It follows you on GPS and will alert you if you stray from the route (we took a shortcut through Mousehole and it spotted very quickly so it won't let you get too lost!). The GPS function doesn't rely on 3G so provided you download the walk before you start then you don't need reception. There's a map function too so it shows where you are on that whenever you want to see. The map's not OS Map quality but fine given the detailed directions. As for the cost, £1.49 per walk will still end up much cheaper than an OS Map provided you're only doing a few walks (the maps are usually around £13 to £15) and when you're navigating through back streets and complex country paths as we were (Mousehole to Lamorna Cove) then the instructions are much better than trying to follow a map. An excellent app. I have to say, I'm very impressed. Now I want iwalkwales!
Great idea, lovely walk. This is a well designed app with accurate waypoints, simple directions and some interesting information about the industrial heritage of the area. Good idea to link it to Google maps too to provide route directions to the start point from any location.
Brilliant Walking App Really enjoyed this walk and information that was given along the way. Was very impressed with the accuracy of the descriptions and notifications of the next point. I would recommend IWalk Cornwall to anyone, great value per walk.
Cheaper than 2 bags of crisps And far more healthy. Waypoints are interesting and accurate with great directions at the right time.. We really liked it and its a bonus that it works offline so battery saving is great as most of this walk was out of range for data. Well worth it and highly recommended. Will be trying more.
Accurate and interesting. I bought this on a whim when in Cornwall. Was expecting to be disappointed but instead have been really impressed. The navigation using the app is excellent, with a loud beep when you get within 10 metres of your next way point - resulting in a 'who can guess the beep point' game as we followed the traiI. The Directions tab has a load of background info for the area we were walking through and the map tab lets you see where you are, well worth the £ I paid for it.
Downloaded the #iwalkcornwall from @iwalkc and went on a circular walk from #stcolumb to #stmawgan the best app I've downloaded by far
Great app and a lovely walk. Seriously, it's well worth a try. It's a great afternoon of entertainment for me.
Golitha Falls Walk. This app is fantastic. Instructions are clear (didn't get lost once!), map is brilliantly thought out, with useful, knowledgeable & interesting comments on local heritage/landmarks etc along the way & can be used even if no internet signal.
Brilliant. We really enjoyed this walk and at first found it like a treasure hunt. The maps and info are clear and the alerts were very useful. Will definitely get more of these. Recommended!!
Fantastic app, lovely walk and learnt loads even though i'm local!
Best kept secret! Glad I came across this map. It takes you on a long relaxing walk with some stunning views and includes a stone bridge and a really cool rope suspension bridge! We did not meet a soul and it felt like we had the whole valley all to ourselves. A must do in Cornwall! The walk will suit most abilities, although you should be capable of climbing over stiles.
This is a cracking walk, well described and the app works really well. We found it very informative, it alerts you every time you need to change direction, and tells you in good time if you stray from the route - much better than carrying a book or map. It's well worth taking the detour to visit Restormel Castle, particularly if it's a nice day as it's an excellent picnic spot and the views are stunning. I'll definitely be buying more of these walks, and I really hope they expand into other areas soon.
Brilliant! Me and my husband used this iwalk app for the first time today - the directions were very clear and having the routemap is very helpful. Will definitely recommend and use more. Thanks!
A brilliant app and an enjoyable journey. The scenery was stunning and the guidance provided was exceptional. A thoroughly worthwhile purchase for anyone looking to explore the town of bude and it's landscape.
Perfect walking guide. Easy to use walking 'SatNav' and informative guide packed full of useful local info and history. App snoozed while we were strolling along then automatically woke up at each way-marker with clear directions for the next leg, saving battery! Map was easy to read and it all worked offline. Looking forward to exploring more of Cornwall with other apps in the series.
Very useful Invaluable tool. Simple to use. Once downloaded you only use GPS, no phone signal needed. The pointer on the map to show where you were was extremely accurate, even knowing which way you were facing!! Very clearly showed you where you needed to go and useful additional information.
Great walk well presented. A great app and a really good walk with a few extras to add further interest. The valley is a real hidden gem in Cornwall that you wouldn't find easily without the app. This walk is a must if you like industrial history.
Excellent app, and a really informative guide. The app tracks your progress and alerts you when a change of direction is needed so you can be sure you're always going to be on the right track. I totally recommend this app, and this particular walk along the stunning cornish coast.
I am notorious for having little sense of direction and getting lost. This app was spot on, I didn't go wrong once and I liked all the information about what was around me.
Fantastic ★★★★★ We've bought 2 of the walks so far and they are brilliant... I love that the walks go in a circle and even without 4G the app knows exactly where we are.
Use this app all the time. Really useful and informative
Great app brilliant additional info. The app was good looked at direction summary and used map to stay on track. I went off track and it warned me straight away. Great buy the maps are so cheap!
Brilliant. Walked Bodmin moor no problems at all. Felt really safe using this app.
